Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, CD

Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, CD, is co-owner and president of Green Mountain at Fox Run, a pioneering women’s healthy weight retreat in Vermont.  Green Mountain was founded 41 years ago to help women stop dieting and learn how to truly take care of themselves to reach and maintain their natural healthy weights.  In January 2015, Green Mountain will open its Binge Eating Disorder (BED) treatment center designed to provide a higher level of care for the many women who come to Green Mountain struggling with BED.

In addition to overseeing a professional program that helps women establish sustainable approaches to healthy living, Marsha has made it her mission at Green Mountain to help women learn to enjoy food and eating again while successfully managing their weight and health.  This is an area she is personally as well as professionally versed in: Marsha successfully overcame an eating disorder brought on by dieting.

A thought leader when it comes to managing eating, emotions and weight, and a voice of reason for the last three decades in helping people move away from diets, Marsha serves on the boards of directors for the Binge Eating Disorder Association and The Center for Mindful Eating.  An accomplished writer and speaker, she has produced curricula, books, pamphlets and articles in consumer magazines and professional journals about the impact of dieting on eating behaviors, including binge eating and emotional eating. Her most recent book is Eating Happy: A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Emotional Overeating.
